Hey, welcome to YWO! Its nice to see a new artist join.

I really like the colors in this photograph: it captures the sunset and the feeling of a summer evening without being too pretty or too saccharine. I especially like the way that the orange of the sunset seems to bleed into everything - the landscape, and the figure. But I think that other parts of the photograph could have been more resolved. I like the way that the figure sort of fades into the landscape, with the arms outlined just by a little bit of light. The mystery is the interesting part of the photo. But I think that either the trees or the grass could be more defined. Maybe the grass.

I love this photo. The way you made the sun distort its surroundings, magic. The view from behind the branches gives us that feeling of watching him walk away, making us kind of want to talk to him about what he is thinking, comfort him possibly. The branches could be a little more clear though. And just a personal preference; that hat just bothers me. It provides nothing for the photo and sticks out so much that it's distracting. Other than that I like it.

I really liked this photo and enjoyed the contrast and vivid colors. I do think that putting more stress on the grass may open it up a little more though and make it a little more vivid.

Really good.
Mi corazon.
Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.

My stories run up and bite me on the leg - I respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite. When I finish, the idea lets go and runs off. -E.H

This is a good photo! I love the sunset and the setting, it gives it a wonderous feel to it. But that person doesn't fit it. If it was someone else or if they were wearing different clothes, it would be alot better. Also some things could be a bit more clear. But besides that, cool photo!

I like the setting of this photo....especially the branches of the trees on the top ends.....only i feel that the photo is a little overexposed and the boundaries are not as well defined as they should be.....especially the sun is a little too bright....
